Breakfast Sandwich at Naidre's

Sometimes I want something more hearty for breakfast, and when I don't feel like I can or want to make something for myself, I turn to Naidre's (502 Henry St., at Sackett St., 718-596-3400, there's also one in Park Slope). On the weekends it can get very crowded, as their breakfast sandwiches, coffee and pastries are top-notch, so there isn't always a table available, especially if you're a large group.

On this particular occasion I got their version of the Egg, Bacon & Cheese sandwich on a sesame seed bagel. You can choose different bread (the flaky croissants are great), but the result is the same. A tasty, full-flavored breakfast sandwich with quality ingredients. There's a good amount of egg, the cheese is melty and the bacon is thick, salty & smoky.

They also have a coffee card thing, so for every nine coffees you buy, the tenth one is free! I live really close by, but during slower times, if there's a table free, I'll sometimes stay to sit and enjoy the neighborhood hustle and bustle while I eat. There's free wi-fi too.

I've gotten sandwiches there a couple of times, and they've always been fantastic. The lemonade was yummy, too. It's places like that that make me wish I hadn't been priced out of my apartment. Ah well.

I lived there when the space (I'm pretty sure it was that space) was still the Cammareri Brothers bakery. I heard they are opening a new place over there now.

Yes! It used to be Cammareri Bros. bakery (I saw them filming Moonstruck there back when I was in Junior High!). They seemed to have joined with the Monteleone Bakery on Court St. (they renovated their space about a year ago and re-opened with both names).

Naidre's went through a rough patch when the original Naidre sold the Henry St. space, about a year ago too, but they seem to have found their legs again. Yes, excellent Lemonade and the best brownies I've ever had.

Thanks for the comment!!

also super mac and cheese, really good coffee and great treats! when it's not too crowded it's a really nice place to hang out.
